% for obama, 27% for romney. governor walker, does your party need to rethink where it stands on the dream act and the whole issue of the 11 million illegals who are currently in this country? >> oh, i think we need to fine a way to move forward on this. i think we want more people who want to live the american dream. this country is based on immigrants. we have to find a way to welcome all of our immigrants in and all who want to live that piece of the american dream. before i was governor i was an executive and the stories that i won every hispanic ward in the county where i was a county executive, why? because i had a message that met with everything. parents wanted their kids to prevail and get the opportunity they deceive. these are things we need to be talking about. if we share that message with all the voters we will do better whether it's his span >>, young voters or other voters, we will do well because we have a message for prosperity and freedom for all. >> and let's take a look at unmarried women who backed obama by a wide margin, by 67% to 31%. governor, you say to republicans, d
. republicans have buried their playbook along with governor romney. the big question is what will the new playbook look like? joining me is democratic strategist and susan, a republican strategist. you read that, you go, wow. >> ouch. >> how deep is this? is it toxic load, get rid of him, move on? the rga certainly seems to say that. >> first of all, governor romney, his political career was over on election night. he never showed any interest in being a leader for the republican party. >> it's not so much they have to bury limb. >> start appealing to a wider base of voters. it's not tossing him aside, i don't think he was going to be a player. his remarks earlier this week were very unfortunate. it almost gave a platform for this new branding of republicans. and also saying we're going to be more open. we're not going to allow people who aren't voters to dictate our policies in the media. and what we want to govern most of all, we're more open to seeing that out of the republican party. >> richard, talk to what susan brings up. a couple of days ago in politico, they reported this -- on g
are appropriate more so than tax increases. getting back to bowles simpson. there was a solution. governor romney offered a solution that wasn't played up in the campaign but to have a flat dollar amount of deductions people could take. >> what about conservatives like bill crystal who are saying it is not going to kill the country if the president raises taxes on millionaires? >> i think it is the wrong thing to do. is it going to kill the country? no, we're the united states. with we survived the last four years of bad government and we will survive another four years of bad government and we will survive if you do it. it will hurt economic growth and government revenues. both parties have an amassive gulf between the people and washington because they see everything in political terms and in terms whofz going 0 vote for them or what interest group will support them opposed to what is right is american and the politicians are telling the people this is bad, that's bad and not what the solutions are. to me, a classic example of thaf is bowles simpson. you had that bipartisan group lay out a very
